Vancouver Drug Trafficking Defence Lawyer

A guilty plea or a conviction on drug trafficking charges will have consequences that are major and permanent. If you do not have a proven, experienced criminal defence lawyer on your side, you run the risk of being sentenced to a lengthy prison term and having a permanent stain on your record. In fact, trafficking in large amounts of some drugs can result in a life sentence.

My name is Michael R. Shapray, and I am an aggressive, successful Vancouver drug trafficking defence lawyer. I have a history of achieving positive results in drug cases ranging from simple possession to importing drugs into Canada.

If you are facing charges or are under investigation related to drug sales, trafficking or possession of a controlled substance, get in touch with me as soon as possible so I can start constructing a defence on your behalf. My goal is to help you avoid jail, fines and minimize all harsh consequences you may be facing.

Skillfully Handling Trafficking Cases Involving Any Type of Drugs

I defend clients throughout British Columbia who are under investigation or have already been charged with trafficking in prescription drugs and illegal narcotics, including:

  • Cocaine
  • Ecstasy
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Marijuana

My approach in defending these cases is aggressive, yet thorough and strategic. I will scrutinize all the circumstances of your arrest, looking into whether the police had a proper search warrant and whether they executed it correctly. For instance, were you stopped while driving your vehicle and then searched without probable cause? I will not allow illegally obtained evidence to be used against you in court.

A Note on So-Called Dial-A-Dope Operations

Over the last few years, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have stepped up their efforts to stop "dial-a-dope" operations, in which a drug user uses a cellphone or undercover officers call a drug dealer to arrange for drugs to be delivered at a certain time and place.

If you were arrested for dealing drugs in one of these kinds of operations, I will investigate whether, for example, the police illegally wiretapped your phone in order to collect evidence against you. I have a relentless drive to uncover the truth and protect my clients. Courts in Canada have also recently ruled that the police must obtain a search warrant before they can look at the data on a cellphone, and I will examine this issue in every case.
